Making Bath Time Fun with Two Toddlers

 

This post was kindly sponsored by Regalo Baby, but as always all opinions are 100% our own!  We've been using Regalo Baby products forever and are so thrilled to partner with such an amazing company!  

Fun, bath time and toddlers don't usually go together (maybe for them, not me).  I wanted to share our routine with you because we've actually been able to make it fun for our girls and non stressful for us!  Ryan and I usually take turns giving the girls a bath, however since I started staying home full time it's mostly been him giving the baths because I have needed some me time for a few minutes after he gets home.  AKA pick up ALL THE THINGS and do all the laundry.  Does anyone else feel like they are a professional picker-upper of things?  I'm sure I'm not alone.  When Ryan asked McKinlee what I do all day she said I watched mama news and picked up stuff.  Ok, on to bath time fun!

we obviously don't bathe them in swim suits, but we wanted to keep them covered up (they are by Stella Cove from last year)

we use the Monat Junior line of shampoo and conditioner.  Their detangler is also amazing!

Bath Time for Two Toddlers

We typically start bath time after dinner, around 6.  I try to prep everything before bath time even starts.  I pick out the girls' pajamas, underwear for McKinlee is laid out, I get a clean diaper for Madison, I make sure I have enough soap/shampoo, and towels ready.  I'll start running the water while prepping everything.  When Ryan or myself are alone, its nice to have everything laid out and ready so I don't have to leave anyone in the tub.  McKinlee would probably be fine, but it still makes me paranoid that something awful would happen.  Madison is always ready to get out of the tub before McKinlee is, so I pull her out and get her dried off in the bathroom and changed right there so I don't have to leave.  Typically, I have to fight with McKinlee to get her out.

Bath Accessories

Regalo Baby is our go to for bath time accessories (and a ton of other baby products as well!).  We have been using Regalo Baby since McKinlee was able to crawl.  We used their safety gates from the beginning.  Regalo Baby sent us their Blue Whale Bath Kneeler and oh my gosh, I am so mad at myself for not getting one sooner!  Ryan and I spend a lot of time kneeling by the bath and my knees would always hurt so badly.  This helps a lot.  I also love that it folds in half for easy storing.  We also use their Bath Toy Scoop and Store toy storage.  This is one of those things that you wish you would have thought of.  We used to store our toys in a plastic bin until I noticed mold growing in it.  So awful!  This lets everything dry and you're not stuck picking out each bath toy individually.  When it says it suctions to the wall of the tub, it actually works!

Regalo Baby also sent us their Whale Bath Safety Handrail.  McKinlee can get in and out of the tub by herself (Madison has really been trying!) and this helps give them a little extra help.  It's mold resistant and gives little one's a little extra support getting in and out of the tub.  Madison and McKinlee are busy bees and seem to fly all over the tub.  The water spout can be pretty painful if they bump themselves on it.  Luckily, we have the Regalo Baby Whale Spout Cover that protects them from bumps and bruises from the spout.

we love the safety handrail since Madi constantly tries to get out on her own

so easy to just scoop everything up and set it back up in the holder 

Turning Bath Time into Learning Time

Ryan and I try to make bath time a time for the girls to brush up on their letters, numbers and colors.  I love these foam letters and numbers to try to teach the girls as we get them clean!  We also really like the finger paint soaps, bath dropz, and bath crayons.  These waterproof bath books look super fun!  Homegoods is also a great spot to look for bath toys too!

Hopefully these tips have helped!  I know when adding another baby into the mix, it made the logistics difficult during bath time (among other things!), but I've really found that a little bit of prep/planning goes a long way in reducing stress.  Thank you so much for reading!
